Game of Thrones may be over, but us fans are still reeling over “the end of the watch.” To cope over the loss of our favorite show we look up memes, rewatch the series, and seek out theories!
*spoilers* You have been warned.
One shocking revelation goes back to the second to the last episode of season 8, The Bells. Even if you’ve never watched GoT, you’ve probably heard about the terrible destruction of King’s Landing and the Red Keep by Daenerys Stormborn and Drogon. It left audiences stunned as several years of a building Dani’s character arc went up in flames.
This scene was straight up predicted by The Simpsons back in 2017! It’s as if the show’s creators knew this was coming.
In this episode, “Serfsons” you’ll see Marge, Homer, Bart, and Lisa looking down over their city dressed in medieval clothing.
“Look,” says Bart, pointing out the massive red dragon burning down the city, “the dragon is burning our village.”
“I love our life,” Homer says.
Easy for Homer to say. He’s a cartoon! When this GoT episode aired we were all like, “I hate my life!” No? Just me?
Anyway, moving on. After the showed aired, Twitter immediately clapped back:
It seems The Simpsons have a knack for predicting the future. 18 times, actually! Like when the US beat Sweden in curling at the Olympic games (Episode “Boy Meets Curl”) and the Siegfried and Roy tiger attack (Episode “$pringfield”).
